Countries must strongly invest in climate-proofing and developing early warning and early action mechanisms to reduce the impact of climate risks, disaster risks and build resilience. A key element in sustainable and transformative development in agriculture is ensuring that investments are designed with robust evidence about both past and future climate variability, seasonality, and extremes.

The urgent need for climate investments in adaptation action has been strongly recognized by several global institutions, given the observed and projected climate impacts on critical sectors, particularly agriculture. Climate risk screening ensures that the linkages between hydrological, meteorological, and climatological hazards and impacts on agricultural systems are fully understood well in advance to strengthen project formulation and implementation.

The Climate Risk Toolbox (CRTB) was developed to support climate-resilient project design. The tool is an open-access resource, hosted on the Hand-in-Hand Geospatial platform, allowing users to obtain a climate risk screening in a few simple steps. The CRTB simplifies climate risk screenings. It can be used by development practitioners for high-level screening at an early stage of planning processes or project design.

The This paper summarizes the findings of WGII AR6 which runs over 3000 pages, focusing on the assessment’s conclusions and their effect on agrifood systems.

WGII contribution to AR6 was released in February 2022. Several chapters are relevant to the agrifood system, especially the chapters on “Food, Fibre, and other Ecosystem Products”, “Water”, “Poverty, Livelihoods and Sustainable Development”, “Health, Wellbeing, and the Changing Structure of Communities”, “Key Risks Across Sectors and Regions”, “Climate Resilient Development Pathways”, as well as the many regional chapters (such as “Africa”, “Asia”), “Summary for Policymakers”, and “Technical summary”.

46 out of the 47 countries in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) submitted a first nationally determined contribution (NDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as of 31 December 2020; South Sudan submitted an intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) back in 2015 but has yet to ratify the Paris Agreement. Seventeen countries1 in SSA have already submitted a new or updated NDC at the time of publication. For the sake of this publication, first round NDCs were reviewed to provide a synthesis of how the agriculture and land use sectors are represented in the mitigation and adaptation contributions in the region. The analysis points to key gaps and opportunities for enhancing ambition in the agriculture and land use sectors in second round NDCs, as well as challenges and barriers to implementation.

This report presents a model crop residue value chain that can support the collection, transport, storage of rice straw which can enable productive uses of rice straw. Moreover, it estimates the quantity of rice straw produced in each district in Punjab and further estimates the investment needed in developing a crop residue supply chain in the state. Finally, it also undertakes a techno-economic assessment of energy technologies to identify the most profitable way to use rice straw to produce sustainable energy.

Bioenergy and food security (BEFS) assessment – Seychelles
Year: 2022

A sustainable and stable energy supply is essential for a country’s stability and wellbeing. Seychelles, like many small island developing states (SIDS), currently depends on imported energy, in the form of fossil fuels. The high dependence on fossil fuel imports means Seychelles is highly vulnerable to disruptions in global markets. The situation is exacerbated by a reliance on imported food, which accounts for about 70 percent of food consumption. To limit this dependence, it is aiming to increase its reliance on renewable energy to 15 percent by 2030, with a long-term ambition of using 100 percent renewable sources for electricity production. 

Sustainable bioenergy is one form of renewable energy that can be used to green a country’s energy mix. This Sustainable Bioenergy Assessment report for Seychelles looks at the potential for sustainable bioenergy within the country, considering the country context, conditions and delicate habitat. The report considers sustainable biomass sources from the agriculture, forestry and waste sectors.
